Citrix is participating in EMC World being held now from today May 9, 2011 at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Citrix XenDesktop transforms Windows desktops as an on-demand service to any user, any device, anywhere. XenDesktop quickly and securely delivers any type of virtual desktop or Windows, web and SaaS application to all the latest PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones, laptops and thin clients – all with a high-def HDX user experience. However, to reap all the benefits of desktop virtualization the storage must be configured for optimal performance.

Organizations can benefit from implementing Citrix XenDesktop in conjunction with EMC storage solutions. Together, Citrix and EMC help our joint customers radically simplify their desktop virtualization deployment, infrastructure, security and management operations. Our certified product integration, proven interoperability and in-depth technical experience help streamline your organization’s IT management processes and increase systems availability.

Citrix and EMC work together with our customers to build solutions that reduce complexity, increase responsiveness to new business needs, and realize immediate capital and operational expense savings without imposing new infrastructure requirements. They can also help you to seamlessly integrate, manage and optimize storage in Citrix environments. Shared storage platforms enable you to leverage multiple protocols to meet all your Citrix use case and configuration requirements, with full support for protocols including iSCSI, Fibre Channel, network-attached storage (NFS, CIFS) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).

Some of the key benefits of working together with Citrix and EMC are rapid desktop deployment, improved storage efficiency, improved compliance, high availability, reduced cost, better performance and scalability.
